Allsorts challenge week 360 - Red, white and blue.

Good Morning, thank you all for your fabulous entries in our Ribbon and Roses challenge last week.

 It is my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts this week and as it is St. George's Day here in England, I have chosen the theme of red, white and blue, I would love to see these three colours on your cards.

Our sponsor this week is the Hobby House.

I have attempted a bit of a CAS look this week
and I have used a Honey Doo Crafts stamp called Floral Corner Flourish.

I stamped the image and then stamped again on a snippet of white card,  coloured the second image and cut out the flowers and placed them on the card with sticky pads to raise them up.

The other flowers are part of a set from the same company,  and I just stamped them directly onto the white card. In hindsight, I should have stamped the flowers where the sentiment is and placed the sentiment where the small flowers are, that's life!
I have gone over the flowers with a Wink of Stella (which only seems to show on the red ones) and added pearls to the centre's.

Hope you all have a great week.
